This page was last modified on 12-07-2017

You intend to hire researchers from third countries in order to undertake research projects or benefit from AFR grants (Aide à la Formation-Recherche) made available by the National Research Fund (Fonds national de la recherche)?

You will then first need to apply for accreditation as a research institute.

In order to receive accreditation, you must submit your application to the Ministry of the Economy together with:

  • the audited annual financial statements for the past 3 financial years;
  • any other additional information deemed necessary for the evaluation of the application for accreditation.

The list of private research institutes accredited by the Ministry of the Economy is available on Guichet.lu.
